Cash Money Records has gained the standing as being one the most successful Hip Hop labels in history.
The company has also earned a reputation for not paying artists and producers.
Lil Wayne’s ongoing battle with Cash Money is the most famous case a signee feeling financially slighted by the imprint.
The New Orleans native had to file a lawsuit against his longtime label home in an attempt to receive back revenue.
Despite the Cash Money’s legal issues with Wayne and others, founders Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams are still able to sign new talent to the roster.
One those fresh acts to join Cash Money is Atlanta-based rhymer Sy Ari Da Kid.
The 2 Soon album creator addressed his willingness to join CMR on his song “Wire Transfer From Birdman.”
“I wanted to separate myself from all this gossip by addressing the elephant in the room, everybody wants to know, ‘does Birdman pay up?’ from all the drama with Lil Wayne (who is one my favorite rappers),” states Sy Ari about the record. “Since I just signed to Cash Money this is my side the story, all facts no diss.”
The video for “Wire Transfer” features an appearance by Birdman and a Rick Ross look-a-like.
Ross was a target in the clip because he called out Birdman on his Rather You Than Me track “Idols Become Rivals.”
